Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Community Fund awards $4 million in grants to local non-profits

Fifty six organizations will receive funding up to $100,000 from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Community Fund to support their work in the local community in the next year. In total, CZI is making $4 million in grants to these local nonprofit organizations.

Launched in 2017, the Community Fund partners with organizations that support the economic and social well-being of communities most impacted by systemic racism and inequities, including Black, Latinx, immigrant, and other marginalized communities. These organizations are providing resources and services to support basic needs — like housing and food assistance, education, and job skills training; responding to emergent issues in our community, like COVID-19; and galvanizing community power and voice to build an inclusive, just, and healthy future for everyone.

CZI has increased funding and expanded the number of organizations supported through the Community Fund for the 2021 cycle to help organizations sustain and build on their critical work amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a CZI spokesperson, 2021 Community Fund grant partners serving the Belle Haven neighborhood include:
